well, if your guitar is already tuned to standard, you can tune the 6th fret of the e string to the a string, and then tune the other strings as if everything were normal, and boom, 1/2 step down.

get a damn tuner, it's not like they require some sort of musical/technical genious to operate.

teaching yourself to tune by ear is really worthwhile if you have to change tunings quickly. i barely ever use my tuner. almost wish i hadn't spent the money on it

I have a tuner - but I think it's gotta be quicker to do it by ear.

Not for me man, it takes me 10 minutes to tune by ear, takes about 30 seconds with a tuner. I use my tuner more than any other accessory except my capo.
